Rodent Control High Peak

The rodent family is made up of many animals but the three most common are Rats, Mice and Squirrels. Rodents continually gnaw and chew to keep their incisors under control. Rodents such as rats, mice and squirrels also shred soft items for nesting materials, spread disease and contaminate food stuffs. Here at Pestforce Pest Control High Peak if called upon we will assess and implement one of our hallmark three visit trapping or baiting programs. Not only do we deal with the problem in hand, we also survey your property for possible access points and where possible complete any remedial works needed. All our trapping and baiting programs are child and pet safe.

High Peak Rat Control

Rats most commonly spread Leptospirosis or as its more commonly known Weil's disease. If rats find their way into cupboards they can spoil foods including chewing through boxes. They can also cause damage to things such as pipes and floorboards. If you suspect you have a rat problem our rat control High Peak team are the guys for you. With 14+ years’ experience we will use only the best products and equipment for the job. Due to the possible health risk and damage contacting Chuck and Jack Murdy your High Peak rat control specialists is vital.

High Peak Mouse Control

Mice are much smaller than Rats and Squirrels but non the less cause plenty of problems including damage. The most common damage we find Mice cause are burst water pipes and shredded soft furnishings such as sofas and chairs. Mice also spread the disease Salmonellosis. Your local High Peak mouse control team consisting of Chuck and Jack Murdy have the experience and expertise to deal with your mouse problem. Speaking with your High Peak mouse control experts is essential if you suspect you have mice as speed is of the essence when dealing with such problems.

High Peak Squirrel Control

Grey Squirrels are the largest and most destructive of the main three protagonists of the rodent family. It’s not unheard of for Squirrels to cause electrical fires, cause irreparable damage to soffits and fascias and even chew through roof joist. Grey Squirrels also carry bacteria that can cause Lyme disease.If you suspect you have Squirrels contacting your local High Peak Squirrel control team is the right move. We offer a multitude of solutions including one off clearance using traps, rolling contracts and stopping entry through remedial work. Getting in touch with Chuck and Jack Murdy our highly skilled High Peak Squirrel control operatives is imperative if you suspect you have a problem.

Bird Control High Peak

Birds including Pigeons, Jackdaws and Magpies carry multiple pathogens and bacteria that can spread disease. Birds such as Pigeons nest and roost under solar panels in lofts and on guttering and drainpipes amongst other places. If left to establish birds become increasingly difficult to dislodge and move on. If you believe you have a problem with birds please contact your local High Peak bird control team to book a free no obligation quote. Below are some of the bird control solutions we offer.

Solar Panel Bird Proofing

Using specialist solar panel clips Pestforce Pest Control High Peak use specialist solar panel clips to secure wire mesh or spikes so stop bird entry under your panels. Our High Peak Bird proofing team not only fit and implement this brilliant solutions we also remove bird debris from under the panels and clean any guan that may be present.

Bird Spiking

Bird spikes are probably the most common bird proofing solution. Bird spikes are secured to ledges, guttering and drainpipes amongst other places. Bird spikes come in a range of sizes with each size designed to control a specific species of bird. The wrong use of spikes renders the proofing useless. That’s why contacting Chuck and Jack Murdy your local High Peak bird control team is vital. So they can assess and implement the right spikes for you. 

Bird Netting 

Our High Peak bird control team have the qualifications and knowledge to implement bird netting for most scenarios. Bird netting comes in multiple sizes each size specific to the bird in question. This is why using an expert bird proofing company such as Pestforce Control High Peak is essential.

Wasp Control High Peak

Wasps are one of the most prolific summer pests. Wasps can usually be found between the months June to October and on occasion as late as December. Wasps have been known to build their nest in sheds, outbuildings, soffit and facias, compost bins and lofts. Our High Peak Wasp control team have been called to jobs where the Wasps have even chewed through plasterboard. Aggressive and angry Wasps are not a pest you want. Wasps can sting with potentially fatal consequences if allergic. Being carnivorous Wasps often come into conflict with humans who are enjoying a BBQ or garden gathering. Pestforce Pest Control High Peaks Wasps removal team use only the best equipment and products to ensure a professional and successful job. Here at Pestforce Pest Control High Peak our charges stay the same for domestic jobs regardless of the wasp nests location.

Bee Control High Peak

Bees are a common pest in early summer. There are over 270 different species of bees in the UK. Bees are indispensable to our food production due to being the main pollinators for crops and flowers. Bee season generally starts and ends a little earlier than Wasp season. Unlike Wasps Bees aren’t generally aggressive but their sting can still be fatal if allergic. Pestforce Pest Control High Peak has a no extermination policy when it comes to Bees. We will only remove and relocate Bees. If you think you have Bees, calling your local Bee removal specialists Chuck and Jack Murdy is essential for positive ID and treatment.

Bumblebee Relocation

Bumblebees are usually fat and hairy, they can usually be found between the months of April and August. Bumblebees often make their nests in compost bins, loft insulation and rotten wood such as logs and dead trees. The most commonly found Bumblebee is the Tree Bumblebee this is a fat, hairy bee with a rusty red back and a white tail. They are most commonly found in loft insulation and old birds’ nests. Chuck and Jack Murdy of Pestforce Pest Control High Peak can ID and advise on which Bumblebee you have. Where possible we locate and remove the nest. We then place the retrieved Bumblebee nest and place it in a plant pot to live out the rest of the season in Chuck's garden.

Honeybee Relocation

Unlike the Bumblebee, Honeybee nest all year round. However Honeybees tend to swarm between the months of April and June. Honeybees tend to colonize in chimney’s, wall cavities and flat roof spaces. Once allowed to establish and colonize Honeybees make honeycomb which can cause issues such as damp. If you suspect you have a Honeybee swarm calling your local Bee control team is vital as speed is of the essence. If Honeybees are left to become established, what may have been a simple swarm retrieval for our High Peak Bee control team becomes a potentially huge job involving removal of things such as walls, roofs and chimney stacks.  Pestforce Pest Control High Peak are passionate about Bees and Bee conservation. So much so that Chuck has completed all his British Beekeepers Association training and has multiple Honeybee Hives across the High Peak area.
